Advice on buying a cheap, slim and light laptop (Budget 450£)

  babamich 20:04 22 Nov 2013


I am interested in buying a laptop. My budget is £450. I would prefer a slim and light laptop, with a small screen (13-14.3 inched). I mostly use my laptop for watching movies, browsing the internet and working on a few programs (Microsoft office, itunes, photoshop etc).

I did a research and found the laptops below. As I don't have good knowledge of the processors, could you please advise me on which one would be best for me or maybe suggest an alternative option? Thank you.

Slightly smaller but with excellent reviews click here is the Asus S200E. Can be bought for £399 from Argos

I have the ASUS 200E - Screen is a bit small for movies. The larger ASUS should be just as good.
